Hatching Eggs, Chicks, and Mature Chickens Available For Sale

We have available hatching eggs, chicks and fully feathered chickens available for sale.

Chicks are hatching & hens are laying!

Spring is on it's way and chicks are hatching. Our hens have bumped up their egg laying with the longer days. We have set up our breeding pens and will have hatching eggs and chicks/ducklings available. For those gardeners out there, we have a steady supply of manure for your flower and vegetable gardens.

Chicken and Duck Eggs For Sale

Our chickens and ducks are still going strong, laying about 3 dozen per day! We will soon be setting up the breeding pens.


Chicks, hatching eggs and roosters

Chicks and hatching eggs, available for purchase.

We will have quite a few extra roosters, for anyone who wants to butcher their own birds.

Ducks and more ducks!

Lots of people have been asking us for ducks eggs. Well, this year we ordered 30 more ducks, so once the hens start laying, we will be able to fill all the requests.


Eggs for sale!

Our chickens and ducks have started laying in full force, now that the days are longer again.

We can fill monthly orders and large orders, just give us a call.


Dominque Hatching Eggs for Sale

We will be breeding our Dominque chickens next. This is the oldest American breed, beautiful, cold hardy, docile and lays a brown egg. My daughter won Best in Show twice with our Dominque hens.

Hatching eggs are $1.50 per egg + shipping (if needed).

Chicks are $3 per chick. (Local pick up only)


Purebred Hatching Eggs, Chicks or Pullets For Sale

For anyone interested in hatching out their own chicks, we will start the incubation process in Janurary. I will post on my blog, which breed I'm doing at a particular time. Anyone interested in hatching eggs or buying chicks let me know. I can ship eggs, anywhere in the US but the chicks have to be picked up at my house. If you are interested in buying pullets of a particular breed, let me know in advance so I can set enough eggs.

4H Show

Well fall is here and the leaves keep filling up the chicken's water tubs! Most of our chickens we raised this season look great. Although, I'm upset that my golden-laced Wyandotte rooster does not have the proper comb. He looks like the standard in all other points, except for his comb.

We were at the Laurita Winery a few weeks ago, had a great turnout. The public was very interested in what our family was doing with our chickens and bought a lot of eggs. Hopefully, we will get some new repeat customers out of the event.

Our family is going to the Hunterdon County 4H poultry show on November 20th. We are showing some of our chickens, hanging out with other chickens people is always a good time.


Vendor table at Laurita Winery's Summer Solitice celebration.

The Laurita Winery has invited us to be a vendor at their 1st annual Summer Soltice Festival on June 19th & 20th. We will be selling eggs and have available sign ups for monthly shares. Also I will be bringing a few of my hens. Come out and see a beautiful winery and some beautiful feathered girls!

Chicken camp raided by fat fox!

     We had to build outside runs for our chickens. So our laying hens are no longer truly free range. I'm very bummed about this sitution. I love watching them scratching around in the leaves looking for bugs and worms. Last weekend we were at the farm working, so we decided to let the "girls and boys" out for the day. Well, we left to retrieve a forgotten item at another location, we were only gone for about 15 minutes. As were driving back to where the chickens are housed we saw a big, fat fox! It must of have been waiting in the bushes for us to leave. He killed one our Americana hens but didn't get away with her. So we tried our hand for the first time at butchering, by reading a book and wielding the knife. The next night we had fresh chicken for dinner. She was pretty tasty considering she was 3 years old! The fox probably has killed 3 of our roosters and at least 5 hens. So now I'm on the constant quest for fresh green stuff to throw in their outside areas.

Incubator peeping once again!

We have a incubator full of Rhode Island Red eggs from our "red head girls" and our "studly" RIR rooster. The first peeps and chirps were heard tonight. It is always exciting to get new chicks!
